Join Us On Saturday 25th July at 2:30pm!








Hello there!

On Saturday 25th July, at 2.30pm - we will be streaming Cops and Robbers (and other silent
films) on YouTube.

We know that you can’t go to the cinema (at the moment) so we have decided to come to
you! Not in person – but on your TV’s, computers, i-pads or even mobile phones.

We will be using YouTube to stream the films. You can watch the films on YouTube, or right here! There are two different versions - one with Audio Description and one without.


We would like to encourage you to set up your very own Relaxed Screening at home, so we
have put together a collection of fun activities and information to help make this experience
feel just as special as a real - life visit to the cinema, including a Relaxed Screening
checklist, an Easy Read story, a recipe on ‘How to make the best Custard Pie (for throwing),
a wordsearch, and a printable cinema ticket!

Presented by Open Theatre and Metro-Bolout-Dodo. Co-Produced by Birmingham Hippodrome. Directed by Esther Simpson A flustered storyteller is joined by a mischievous mocking bird as he follows Hansel and Gretel deep into the forest. All is not what it seems, as the characters start to tell their own version of this peculiar adventure. Come along and meet the wicked witch and her really rather eccentric chef in this truly imaginative version of Hansel and Gretel. Live music, hilarious performance and a mesmerising design ensures that this play will entertain and amuse the entire family.

★★★★ “A fabulous family show. Comedy gold!”
